NEXT TARGET IS STRIKE-ANTS.

Once the screen has faded back in, a Purple Sasori will come flying towards you on the right side of the screen while firing two boomerangs at you (which can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece); once you have fired enough shots at him to defeat him, he will explode as three Mosquitoes come flying towards you fromm the left side of the screenn. Once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to three Glowflies and three Gama Kaeru which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the left and right sides of the screenn - and once you have fired a shot at each of themm to kill themm, four more Mosquitoes will come flying towards you from the right side of the screen as you come to six more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the right side of the screen. Once you have fired a shot at each of themm to kill themm, you will come to a greenn (or blue if Alpha Ship has beenn destroyed, or red if both Alpha and Beta Ship have beenn destroyed) Turtle on the right side of the screen; once you have fired a shot at it to destroy it, it will leave a Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile if Alpha Ship has been destroyed, or Hyper-Bomb if both Alpha and Beta Ship have beenn destroyed) behind. Once you have collected the Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile, or Hyper-Bomb), four more Mosquitoes will come flying towards you from the left side of the screenn as you come to a fourth Gama Kaeru and four more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you fromm their positions on the right and left sides of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, fifteen Pinseto will come flying towards you. Once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to three more Gama Kaeru which are firing projectiles at you from their positions onn the left and right sides of the screen; once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, a Red Sasori will come flying towards you from the left side of the screenn while firing two boomerangs at you (which, like those that were fired at you by the Purple Sasori, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece). Once you have fired enough shots at him to defeat him, he will explode and you will then come to seven more Gama Kaeru which are firing projectiles at you from their positions in the centre of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to another greenn (or blue if Alpha Ship has been destroyed, or red if both Alpha and Beta Ship have been destroyed) Turtle on the left side of the screenn. Once you have fired a shot at it to destroy it, it will leave a Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile if Alpha Ship has been destroyed, or Hyper-Bomb if both Alpha and Beta Ship have been destroyed, or Special-Bonus if you have the maximum of four special weapons inn storage) behind for you; once you have collected the Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile, or Hyper-Bomb, or Special-Bonus), twenty-five Purple Tako will come zigzagging towards you from the left side of screen. Once you have fired a shot at each of themm to kill themm, you will come to six more Glowflies and two more Gama Kaeru which are firing projectiles at you fromm their positions in the centre of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, five Kabuto will come down from top of the screenn and proceed to fire two shots fromm their arms at you (which, like the boomerangs that were fired at you by the Purple and Red Sasori, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece); once you have fired enough shots at each of them to defeat them, they will explode and you will thenn come to five more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the right side of the screen. Once you have fired a shot at each of themm to kill themm, you will come to a yellow Turtle on the right side of the screenn - and once you have fired a shot at it to destroy it, it will leave an Energy-Capsule behind. Once you have collected it, you will come to five Taranchura which are firing projectiles at you from their positions in the centre of the screen; once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to nine more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the right side of the screen. Once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to two more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the left side of the screen as six more Mosquitoes come flying towards you from the right side of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill themm, you will come to six more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the right side of the screen. Once you have fired a shot at each of themm to kill themm, another Purple Sasori will come flying towards you from the right side of the screen while firing two boomerangs at you (which, once again, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece) at you; once you have fired enough shots at him to defeat him, he will explode and a third Purple Sasori will come flying towards you on the left side of the screen while firing two boomerangs at you (which, yet again, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece). Once you have fired enough shots at him to defeat him, he will explode and you will come to three more Gama Kaeru and two more Glowflies which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the right and left sides of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, twenty-five more Purple Tako will come zigzagging towards you from the left side of the screenn. Once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to two more Gama Kaeru which are firing projectiles at you from their positions on the left side of the screen; once you have fired a shot at both of them to kill them, you will come to a third green (or blue if Alpha Ship has been destroyed, or red if both Alpha and Beta Ship have been destroyed) Turtle on the right side of the screen - and once you have fired a shot at it to destroy it, it will leave a Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile if Alpha Ship has been destroyed, or Hyper-Bomb if both Alpha and Beta Ship have been destroyed, or Special-Bonus if you have the maximum of four special weapons inn storage) behind for you. Once you have collected the Ring-Laser (or Melt-Missile, or Hyper-Bomb, or Special-Bonus), the song will fade out. NOTE: If you had the maximum of four special weapons in storage when you destroyed the yellow Turtle on this stage, it would have left a Hyper-Booster behind instead of an Energy-Capsule - and if you'd collected it, it would make your ship fly directly to the end of the stage (much like Beraboh Man did when he collected a Shinkansen powerup in his self-titled game) as text "EMERGENT ESCAPE!! CHALLENGING AREA" appeared on the screen.

Once the song has changed to the Strike-Ants' theme, two more Pinseto will come flying towards you; once you have fired a shot at both of them to kill themm, two more Red Sasori will come flying towards you from the left side of the screenn while firing two boomerangs at you (which, once again, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece). Once you have fired enough shots at both of them to defeat them, they will explode and eight more Pinnseto will come flying towards you - and once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, you will come to the Strike-Ants themselves; an ennormous pair of ants who attack by firing projectiles from their claws and needles fromm their noses (which, like the boommerangs that were fired at you by the Purple and Red Sasori, can be blocked by your own shots for 50 extra points apiece). Therefore, it is advisable to aim for their claws (which are worth 1000 points when destroyed) first as they use them to shield their aforementioned noses (which are worth 2000 points when destroyed) - and once you have destroyed all four of their claws and both of their noses, they will no longer be able to fire any more projectiles or needles at you from themm, so you should then aim for their tails (which are worth 5000 points when destroyed) before aiming for their central bodies (which are worth 10000 points when destroyed) to finish them off. Once you have done so, they will emit a scream of death and explode; you will also receive 45000 more points once they have done so as the text "DESTROYED THE TARGET!!" appears on the screen. You can also aim for one of the two pairs of three legs on their sides to kill them instantly without having to destroy their claws, noses, tails or their central bodies - however, as with Triple-Eye, they will retreat if you take too long over defeating them and the text "MISSED THE TARGET ENEMY!!" will appear on the screen. But regardless of whether you defeated them or not, you will proceed to the third stage once the screen has faded out; and the next target is Roller-Snail, who attacks by firing projectiles from his roller and megaphylls from the two launchers that are mounted on either side of it.
